[applause] what a generous audience. as we plot to prosperity, please remember that nothing that we do will make a decisive business if we don't make the most important investment of all, in investing in the training of young people. the legacy of the educational inequality is an economy operating at half power, never getting the qualifications that they could get, never turning the wages that they could earn. the true cost of this cannot be counted in pounds alone. this is a huge drag on the economy, but more than that, this is part of the natural justice and everything that

them to their promises on the environment. [applause] of course, there was a time when it looked like they got it. it seems a long time ago now. when the tories were going through their naturalist phase. the windmills gently turning, the sun shining in. as a pr exercise, it was actually quite brilliant. until, at last year's party conference, they went and ruined it all, admitting that you can't in fact "vote blue and go green". well of course you can't. to make blue go green you have to add yellow, and that's exactly what we're doing. as we plot our path from austerity to prosperity, we need to remember that nothing we do will make a decisive difference if we don't make the most important investment of all, in the education and training of our young people. for we will only fulfil our collective economic potential, if we fulfil our individual human potential. yet the legacy of educational inequality in britain is an economy operating at half power, with far too many young people never getting the qualifications they could get, never doing the jobs they could do, never earning the wag

environment, even 90 minutes with a skilled moderator, allow them to go at each other, steering the debate, that is one thing. but if it is complete free-for- all, i think the campaign would never risk it. >> in the first debate, i learned afterward, nixon was one of the smartest politicians ever to be vice president, and of course later, president. and he was the most gracious. that did not come across in the debate. why was that? no one seems to have asked that question. was he over-awed by his wealth, his tan? that is why what i want to know. why nixon did not bring that out as much as he did in the first one, in the next three. >> if i could, on the fact checking, one thing that i do that is helpful is to go to multiple fact checking organizations. go to several and get the consensus about what people have to say about the candidate's statements. >> we will go to a question from the studio. >> i have a question for professor mcilwain. i have been intrigued by your academic work, looking at how race influences the way candidates communicate with different audiences. for the first time,
